NBT World: Thailand Today EP. 114:Thailand is a model country in using SMART Patrol Technique for protected area management in ASEAN region.
As patrol is globally proven as an essential form of protection to valuable resources in protected areas, conservation scientists have tried to modernize patrol activity with science and technology for better securing the future of wildlife and its habitat.
Today, Dr. Anak Pattanavibool, Advisor to the Director General of the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP), will tell us how Thailand can be a model country in using SMART Patrol System for protected area management in ASEAN region.

Although recruitment into the population of tiger >1 year old may increase slightly through greater cub survival, we speculate that far greater increase in survival are likely to occur after a time lag of several years (through cub survival and immigration) in response to increase and stabilization of prey densities, following increased patrol effort.

"Hear the real wild elephant call"
Over 25 elephants were traveling across the reservoir. Some mothers were feeding on her young calves and some of the carefree calves really enjoyed swimming. This is why the herd had a long line and they needed to communicate by loud calling.
Some of you might have never heard this resounding call of the wild elephants before. This is the call of the largest land mammals in the world.
"Note from the Field: Longing to see you"
Every year during dry season, WCS staff observe elephant herds that come to quench their thirst and have a good time in the main reservoir nearby Kaeng Krachan National Park. Let’s count the number of elephants in this herd!
“Note from the Field: Courtship Practice”
Green peafowls belong to the pheasant family. They forage on the ground in small groups. During breeding season, the adult males have long tail feathers while young males and females are quite similar in appearance. The adult males display their beautiful fanned tails as part of their courtship. When the young males saw that display they would practice it too.
